    You can check with the VA. However, I don't believe that you will be entitled to any benefits or any other type of help.

  • Hello, I am having some problems with a student loan issue. I need to speak with an attorney about the problem I am having.

    Without getting to extensively involved in the situation, I have so far between garnishments and seized taxes, paid back over $30,000.00 on a $5,000.00 loan. I do not feel this is right and need to find out what I can do to remedy this situation.

    Christopher’s Answer

    Look for a bankruptcy attorney here on Avvo with the Find a Lawyer tool. I have referred people to Stephen Harkess who have rave reviews about him. However, understand most student loans can't be discharged in bankruptcy.

  • I want to know if there is a possible way to get full or sole custody of my kids?

    I just want to know if there is a way to get sole custody of my kids(2)? It is a very long story but right now the dad was no vehicle to pick up and drop off the kids as stated in our parenting plan, he said since November 2014 that he need to get...

    Christopher’s Answer

    Mr. Salter is correct and would be a good attorney to consult with in this case. I am a former CO judge and you need to understand that the common mindset of almost every judge in CO is that children do best with being raised by both parents. So, arguments for full or sole custody are not welcomed except for very unusual cases by most judges. Most judges shoot for as close to 50/50 parenting time as possible. You are not raising issues in which the father is a meth head, junkie, child abuser, or pedophile. As such, he would ve viewed to have equal rights to the kids. You really need to get a family law attorney on board ASAP.

  • Can competition disqualify me for wearing religious attire?

    Does a sports competition have a right to disqualify me for wearing religious attire? It does not derange the way I do the sport.

    Christopher’s Answer

    It is quite possible. We would need to know the sport, the religious attire, and the reasons that they don't want you to wear the religious attire. I think that you meant that it doesn't "distract" or "detract" from the way that you compete in the sport. However, if it would lead to confusion about what team you are on or your position on that team and they have a good faith argument for you to not wear the religious attire, they can make such a request. They simply must have a basis. I have played sports in which they insisted that no jewelry (rings, cross necklaces, etc.) NOT be worn for the protection of the athletes and it was upheld as being justified.

  • Do I need a tenant lawyer?

    My apt is currently missing my dining room wall and roof and part of my living room wall leaving mold exposed from a exterior leak and my landlord is saying its "habitable". I feel it's not.

    Christopher’s Answer

    Yes, you do. And Corky Eby out of Castle Rock confines his practice to landlord/tenant law and he is active here on Avvo. Give him a call to set up a consultation.

    My ex wife receives monthly alimony from me and I have a judgement against her for nearly $7,000 can I, instead of trying to place a lien on her bank account just send her a letter stating that I am going to be collecting a judgment against her th...

    Christopher’s Answer

    Nope. You can't garnish your ex's child support or maintenance (formerly called alimony) to collect on a judgment. It is exempt under CO law.

    My name is Myron Daily an I have questions about another state that is taking child support from me but they never allowed me to take a paternity test to find out if he was mine. They refused me this several times but yet I still pay child support...

    Christopher’s Answer

    You need to look for a family law attorney in the Pueblo area here on Avvo to represent you. Sorry, but we can't call you at the phone number you provided, because that would be considered to be soliciting business and against Avvos rules.

  • How do I go about sealing my criminal records and how much would it cost?

    First arrest was in 1992 or 93. It was dismissed after my probation since it was my 1st offense. 2nd arrest was in November 2002. Both we for theft.

    Christopher’s Answer

    If you did probation, it doesn't sound like the 1992 or 1993 charge was a deferred judgment and sentence. If it wasn't and was an actual conviction, it can't be sealed. The second arrest in 2002 almost certainly wouldn't have been a deferred judgment and sentence and can't be sealed. Cases can only be sealed if 1) they are dismissed outright, 2) you are found not guilty at trial, or 3) you successfully completed a deferred judgment and sentence and no charges in the case were reported as convictions.

  • How long, after a case is dismissed, do you have to request the items seized, be returned?

    Drug charges in 2013 and 2014, I accepted a plea bargain, and the 2013 case was dismissed.

    Christopher’s Answer

    There is no set time limit. However, you need to file a Motion with the Court for the return of the property and then the DA needs to communicate this to the law enforcement agency that seized the property. Hopefully, the items have not been destroyed yet.

    Christopher’s Answer

    Best bet is to hire an attorney to contact her by phone, email or letter and threaten a replevin or a civil theft action if the car is not returned.
